Gorgeous AND Easy Holiday Nails!

Need a simple, but beautiful idea for your holiday nails.  This one is great!  Although it is shown in green and red, you could do yellow and brown for thanksgiving or do a silver and gold effect for any occasion.  We used Zoya Nail Polish in Ivanka (green) and Pixie Dust Oswin (red) and white.

Begin with a clear coat (or any very pale nude color) and paint the nail.  Let dry.

At the tip, paint on the red in a triangular shape with the base of the triangle being at the side of the nail.  Let dry.

Paint the green next, starting at the opposite side to where you started your red color.  Paint so it starts wide and narrows as it moves across the tip.  It should be very narrow at the far side from where you started.

Clean up the top edge by adding a stripe of white.  Then add a clear top coat to seal it all.

Little Tweaks for Professional Hair Styling Results

When your hair needs to look fresh and you need to get it done fast, here are some tiny changes to make to your styling routine for professional-level results!

Control Your Frizz - Whether you're wearing your curls down, up, pinned, braided, natural, or set, nothing puts the damper on a look more than an out-of-control frizzy hairline. Once you've arranged your ringlets exactly how you like them, don't forget to smooth your edges with a thick, matte pomade for a polished look.  Joico Matte Grip Texture Crème is perfect for this!

Prevent Creasing - Flatiron creases at the roots are the visible panty lines of hair. Avoid the hot-tool giveaway by clamping the iron in short sections near the scalp, and then running it continuously toward the ends.  Gently stretch a piece of hair so it's taut near the roots, start the flatiron as close to the scalp as possible, and work in quick, short clamps for a few inches until you can pull it to the ends in one shot. If there are any indents, lots of small presses will smooth them out better than one line.

Smooth out your Bangs - If you take a brush underneath your bangs and scoop them out and down, you'll get too much volume away from your head. Instead, to brush bangs down from the front while rolling them up to get a smooth blowout. This technique is also perfect for knocking out cowlicks.

Alternate Twists - Real talk for a minute: We all know at this point that no one actually wakes up with sexy, imperfect waves. The trick to getting that messy model-off-duty look is easier than you might think: When curling a piece of hair, wrap only the midsection around the iron. This is something the pros all do, but at-home-curling-iron-wielders often forget. Leaving out the roots and ends (and therefore keeping them straight) looks cooler and also takes way less time. Also, wrap the iron in different directions so hair goes toward and away from your face in a staggered pattern.

Shine this Holiday season with Gold!

You want to add a little extra oomph to your make-up for holiday parties?  Nothing shines the gold! The key is to add the touches in just the right places so your radiance is subtle, but stunning.

Add radiance to your eyes.  Jane Iredale's PurePressed Eyeshadow in Rose Gold.  Use it as the lid color or the under the brow gold, depending on how many shades you use to create your eyeshadow look.

Baring your shoulder's or your décolleté?  Spritz on Brocato's Shimmer Gold Spray.  The gold flecks ad a sexy shimmer.  Best of all, this spray won't hurt clothes (you can actually spray it on them!).

Finally your nails!  OPI's Rose Gold Nail Lacquer "Worth a Pretty Penne" looks festive, yet understated.

An easy Autumn Nail Art that's fun to do!

Autumn is full of the bright hues of red, orange, gold and brown.  Twilight comes early, apples are crisp and leaves shimmer in the morning light.  Give your nails a touch of the fall season with this easy-to-do nail design.

1.  Paint nails a matte shade of white or ivory.  Let dry.  (Hint: using quick dry drops like Essie Quick-E or Zoya Fast Drops can really speed up the time you spend on manicures.)

2.  Using a black polish (or black nail pen), paint tree "branches" on a couple of nails of each hand.

3.  Pick out your best autumn color polishes...golds, browns, oranges, yellows or corals...and add dots (leaves) in various sizes in each color you've selected to each nail.  Make sure your brush has only a minimum amount of polish at the tip so colors don't run.  It's better to add a few at a time until you achieve the look you want.  (Hint:  a small, inexpensive paint brush, like from a child's watercolor set, makes great dots!  Just clean between colors.)

4.  Apply a clear top coat to seal!

The Perfect Gift Exchange

The holiday season is full of parties, dinners, and gift exchanges. Gift exchanges can be so much fun with all of your friends but they can also be very hard to shop for. After all, there is usually a low spending limit that seems to buy less and less each year, the possible gift receivers range in taste, needs, and everything else in between and it's never any fun to end up the buyer of the gift people are begging to steal.

Leyla Milani has the golden ticket to keep you feeling your most beautiful from the inside out.

Here are the products I personally tested:

 Leyla Milani Beachy Volume & Texture Spray

  • A sea salt infused spray for mega volume & sexy texture, with a fresh ocean air scent & a unique formula that will give you that effortless Beachy look. 
  • DIRECTIONS: Spray on damp or dry hair, finger dry or let dry naturally, For more fullneness-defuse with heat. Works on wet hair to create volume, and dry hair for piecey texture.

Leyla Milani No H2o Volumizing Dry Shampoo

  • A unique dry powder spray that is the perfect solution to extend the life of your style with a tremendous renewing & refreshing effect that adds volume with a fresh scent & no white residue or heavy buildup.
  • DIRECTIONS: Start by brushing hair thoroughly, spray product evenly throughout hair. If you have greasy hair, apply more. Let the dry shampoo set in your hair for a few minutes to absorb the sebum, if hair is greasy may take a bit longer to set. Towel your hair until all the dry shampoo is absorbed. Brush again for beautifully de-greased hair then style as desired.

Leyla Milani Rescue Me Argan Oil Intense Hydrating Hair Mask

  • Infused with Shea Butter & softening Argan Oil, this intense mask is packed with everything you need to transform your tresses into lusciously luminous, silky smooth, touchable locks. 
  • DIRECTIONS: Apply a generous amount to towel dried, shampooed hair and comb the product through. Allow it to penetrate your hair for 5-10 minutes then rinse out. Use once weekly for best results and less frequently as your hair improves.

The Experience:

I'm always researching for the perfect product combinations to serve all my Beauty Warrior needs, from everyday to date nights, vacations and beyond. However, I go into these experiments with a healthy amount of skepticism, knowing that if I'm wrong then I genuinely have something to shout from the rooftops. So, imagine my awe the first time I saw Leyla Milani's real hair, in my wildest dreams I would never have thought my hair could become that luxurious. Even on my wedding day when I had a beautiful, vintage finger wave style professionally done it fell out and flattened long before pictures could be taken. That was a common occurrence with styling my hair and it was tragic, so I swore never again to go through those horrible hair blues.
I'm absolutely thrilled to report that no one has to go through that ever again! As I have achieved my best hair yet with Leyla Milani Hair products, let me walk you through my experience so you can understand how I changed styling my hair and why I chose to test those specific products.

My hair is a lot of work all the time, I have said it before and it's no less true now. If I don't heat style or plan to wear my natural curls with a bucket of products then it doesn't play nice.
So I began with the Rescue Me Hair Mask, after shampooing my hair I squeezed the excess water out and generously applied the baby pink cream, finger combing the product through to the ends. The smell was light and floral, much like fresh roses and the professional glide of the product was thorough. I could feel the Mask being absorbed by my hair as it swelled with the intense hydration, I left it in for 10 minutes on my first attempt. Immediately upon rinsing it out I noticed that the product had sealed itself around my hair, with the texture becoming extremely smooth down to the very tips. It actually felt like I had a protective barrier on my hair before I even stepped out of the shower. Which the tips of my hair tend to take the worst beating and products usually don't effect the way they look or feel, but this Mask really healed & sealed them for days on end. While my hair was damp I sprayed the Beachy Volume & Texture Spray all over then brushed it through. The spray had a wonderful ocean scent I noted before moving on to finger drying my waves-to-curls hair and the shine alone was incredible. My bangs dried flat for the first time since I cut them instead of their usual frizz ball. Normally I have to straighten excessively to tame this problem. Yet, I wore my hair down all day in those Beachy curls, during a rain storm and my hair never frizzed once. Not once! And by the way, I got my husband to try the Mask as well and he also loved it! It made his chest length, thick curly locks smooth & manageable like never before.
The next day I brushed my hair thoroughly then used the No H20 Volumizing Dry Shampoo to freshin up my roots and bangs, which this product had such a light & refreshing feeling. There was no residue at all, I let it sit for about 2 minutes to absorb excess oils then gave my natural curls a bigger boost by curling my hair with a 1" curling wand to go on a date with my husband. Each ringlet was voluminous and touchably soft, my hair had great bounce and looked healthy, shiny & voluptuous. I found that all night I couldn't stop touching my hair. Ladies stopped me in the restaurant and at the movie theater to ask about my hair. And I'm generally not the girl this happens to, it was incredible, so I told them the secret - Leyla Milani, ladies!
So I'm paying forward these fantastic beauty secrets because women should empower each other to feel their best. Stop stressing over your hair - Shop it & Love it, you know your a bombshell too. And lets start a beautiful conversation about this, comment down below.

Obsessed with this CHI 😍

So, CHI's Deep Brilliance line... AMAZING! We don't have enough words to describe how yummy these products smell. The scent reminds us of fruity pebbles with a hint of musk, similar to nag champa... We don't know, but whatever it is, it's delicious! The smell isn't overbearing at all, but sticks with you throughout the day, which we really like!

Why do we recommend using the Deep Brilliance Shine Serum Lightweight Leave-In Treatment to so many of our clients & customers?  This stuff is the bees-knees! Not only will this product leave your hair shiny and silky, but it doesn't make it feel or look greasy at all! It will eliminate flyaways too, without weighing your hair down, making it perfect for those with fine hair. Another plus is that this product is paraben free. We guarantee you'll not be disappointed with CHI's entire Deep Brilliance line.

A Luxurious Holiday : L'ANZA Keratin Healing Holiday Gift Set Review

There is nothing like the feeling you get when taking a leap of faith with a new product line that actually makes a difference. Not just by improving your styling regimen but in the overall health of your hair for the everyday. 
For this little adventure, I'm going to walk you through my experience with the L'ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Holiday Gift Set. Let's review what these products actually do and for who they are meant for so you can understand why I choose them for myself, along with what hair care problem I needed to solve with this experiment:
This Gift Set features an unparalleled Keratin Oil powered Phyto IV complex infused with Abyssinian Flower Oil, Coffee Seed Oil, Acai Fruit Flower & Babassu Kernel Oil to repair damaged hair. L'anza has 6 additional options for this gift set while supplies last. Ideal for all hair
types & textures. Gift Set Includes:
  • Silken Shampoo ~ An ultra luxurious healing shampoo with a rich & creamy lather that replenishes vital Keratin proteins to restore hairs volume.
  • Silken Conditioner ~ A luscious healing conditioner that reconstructs the inner layers of the hair to add body & bounce while rehydrating so hair is soft & silky smooth.
  •  Hair Treatment ~ Builds body & strength with concentrated healing actives that replenishe optimal moisture while restoring elasticity & superior shine.
My hair is a lot of work all the time, I have fine wavy/curly hair but a ton of it and it's really long. Almost touches my lower back when straight, it's cut into long layers with thick side bangs. I'm naturally a golden blonde but I color it pitch black. It frizzes easily in humidity and when it rains, if I heat style too much it becomes brittle and breaks off. So I was in need of a new hair care line that would give me the ability to style it without feeling like I had just murdered my hair, while sorting out the damage I do by coloring it too.
 L'ANZA answered every hair care wish I had, I'm thrilled to report. Not only does it smell absolutely heavenly, which lasted for days, but this trio brought the life back into my hair literally. To my surprise, when I straightened my hair it was voluminous, silky soft & shiny not frizzy, dry or crunchy as I have experienced before with some products. When I wore my hair in my normal waves to curls style, the waves were smooth & the ringlets were really defined. This is truly a system that works hard for you, The Healing Hair Treatment alone felt like silk in my hands, not sticky and never greasy. I actually tried to put too much in to see what would happen and it just absorbed right to the tips. I have been using this system for two weeks straight now and my hair has never looked better & it has changed my hair game from flat to fierce. So, let us know what you think in the comments down below if you try any of these products!

This informational review was written by Beauty Care Choices staff member - Kristen.  She recently joined our team.  Kristen has learned a lot in her in her first few months with us...including her excitement at the amazing number and variety of professional hair care products available and how great a difference finding the right products for your hair type makes.

Tri-Palette Perfection!

Step 1:
Apply an eye primer (we love glo Skin Beauty's Shadow Primer). A primer is essential for a smooth, long-lasting application.  A good primer acts as an adhesive for the shadow and helps intensify the color pigment. 

Step 2:
Dust the base color (the lightest shade in the palette) on your entire lid and up to the brow.

Step 3: Apply your lid color (the medium shade in your palette)  with a medium, flat shadow brush. For stronger pigment, pat it on until you reach the color intensity you want.

Step 4:
Apply the crease color (the darkest shade in the palette) to your crease and outer corner of the eyes. Blend it well, but gently, with a fluffy shadow brush, so the color transition between the lid and crease colors looks natural.

Step 5:
Take the base shade (lightest shade)  and apply it along the brow bone to finish the look.

Find just the right color palette for you.  See all of our eyeshadows, click here!

Double Cleansing and OCM? Tell me more!

Do you do double cleanse when you wash your face? Maybe we think it will dry out our skin or we just don't have the time for all that. But, if you answered no you're not alone. The fact of the matter is; double cleansing is a necessity, especially at night and especially if you wear make-up. We like to use oil-based cleansers or just plain oil to remove makeup, loosen up clogged pores and clear congested skin. One of our favorite products is Dermalogica's Precleanse.

Use code "DERMGIFT" at checkout
The oil cleansing method, or OCM for short, is a way of washing your skin using only an oil, some water, and a washcloth.OCM is the most simple and effective way to pre-cleanse your skin. The main difference between oil-based cleansers and oil (used in OCM) is emulsifiers. Emulsifiers found in oil-based cleansers allow the product to rinse off completely. Both are great for removing sunscreen, sebum, waterproof makeup, and environmental pollutants making sure your skin is prepped and ready to allow your cleanser to penetrate further for a professional cleaning. It is very important to massage the precleanse (or oil) into your skin in circular motions using your fingertips for at least 1 minute. The heat from your hands will warm both the oil and your skin which will allow your pores to release the debris and buildup; you will actually feel the oil starting to get gritty. Next use a bit of warm water, just enough to wet your fingertips and begin to massage again. If using a precleanse, the water will activate the emulsifiers and the product will start to lather. To remove simply use a warm washcloth. Your skin should feel super hydrated! You're now ready for your facial cleanser!

Winter Skin Season is Here!

Many times we think of our skin as being dry when in reality it's just dehydrated. In this little blog, you will find tips on how to reduce redness, chapping, flaking and itching that many of us suffer from during winter months. Retaining moisture is key to having that naturally soft and glowing skin you've always wanted.

First and foremost we must stress, DO NOT TAKE SCALDING HOT SHOWERS. We know we know... we love a really hot shower during the winter BUT this is the worst thing we can do to our skin. We deplete our natural oils by opening the pores with hot water. At the very least, make sure you're washing your face with luke-warm water. Even reducing the number of times you take a super hot bath or shower will be extremely beneficial to your skin.

Next, moisturize while your skin is still damp. Immediately after cleansing your face, use a toner to balance your pH then apply your moisturizer. Its rehydration will ensure your skin is able to properly seal in that moisture. Knowing your skin type and choosing the correct moisturizer is also very important. Try to stay away from petroleum-based ingredients, as they will do more damage than good, especially during the colder months. Look for natural oils such as jojoba, chamomile, lavender and argan oil which are perfect for keeping your skin supple and moist.

Heating systems tend to dry out the air as well as our skin. Invest in a humidifier; your skin will thank you. We suggest putting one in your bedroom to hydrate while sleeping. And speaking of hydrate, make sure you're getting plenty of water throughout the day!

Follow these easy steps and you'll be on the road to dry skin recovery... you're welcome 😉
Don't forget, sharing is caring! What better holiday treat than to make sure your friends and family are free of dry, flaky and chapped skin too!  Check out some great gift ideas by clicking here.

Skin Care Supplements...(or SuppleMENTAL)

To supplement or not? Over 2/3 of adults in the United States take at least one dietary supplement daily. Must be something we all need to start taking, right? But, then you hear how loosely the FDA regulates supplements in the US and many of them do absolutely nothing for us. This can be very misleading, confusing and frankly, it's enough to drive you crazy! This is why you can be a huge skeptic regarding the whole supplemental bandwagon.

Recently, Beauty Care Choices staff attended a class with one of our Jane Iredale representatives,  who came to introduce us to their new line of, wait for it..... SUPPLEMENTS.

"Here we go!" ... but education is huge with our salon and it's our job to stay up to date and knowledgeable about the products we sell. By the end of the class, we were onboard. Some of our staff are  currently taking the supplements and here's why:

The skin care supplements are not tested on animals, they are gluten-free, there is no added dairy, yeast, wheat, artificial flavorings or colors, GMO ingredients or soy! Here comes the kicker - the supplements are manufactured in the UK to certified Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) regulations. This is a big point in their favor. For more information on international GMPs click here.

So, what are the vitamin types and what do they do?   Skin Vitamin A contains vitamin A, with Vitamin D added.  Vitamin A is important for cell production and growth so it helps to regenerate firm and youthful skin.  It's the anti-aging formula!  Skin Antioxidant, made with seven super antioxidant phytonutrients from plants keeps your youthful skin longer.  Skin Omegas maintain your skin's integrity and healthy lipid is smooth & luminous.  Skin Complete combines the ingredients from Skin Antioxidant and Skin Vitamin A so you get the benefits of both in one capsule.  Skin Accumax is the way to go for clear, flawless skin naturally!

Holiday Nails - Idea #1

This Holiday Nail Art from OPI looks beautiful, but complicated.  Yet, as OPI shows you how, it is really easy...especially if you have the patience.  They used a red, white, and glitter silver, but you could just as easily make it brown, orange and yellow for Thanksgiving or red, green and gold glitter for a holiday look.

Toners - an essential for flawless complexion!

Your skin ain't what it used to be! There is, however, a  magical liquid called Toner. This product is absolutely amazing!  As you round the corner into your 30's and beyond, we all need all the help we can get.  Adding a toner to your daily regimen, you will actually notice very visible results over time. We all want to age like a fine wine! No more blemished complexion and flaky dry patches. Here are a few benefits, you may not have known, that will happen when you begin using a toner.

Toner balances pH and hydrates your skin. Some toners are humectants, acting as a bonding agent for your skin and moisturizer. Toners should be used directly after completely cleansing your face, this will set the stage for ultimate moisturization.

Toners Minimize the appearance of pores. Certain toners contain an acid that helps to speed up the natural exfoliation rate of your skin. By sloughing off these dead skin cells and allowing for new cellular growth, you're reducing the visibility of enlarged pores.

Toners Add protection. Toners protect your pores by removing minerals as well as chlorine that is found in tap water.

Toners Refresh skin. You can use it as a cleanser when your skin is oily or dirty, even when you're on the go. Tip: Put your toner in the refrigerator for a little pick me up or during hot summer months! Also, great for hot flashes, sunburns, and rashes!

Toners Even skin tone. Using a toner containing Rosehip oil will help reduce redness, even skin tone and is great for rosacea.

Toners Prevent ingrown hairs. Toners are not only super beneficial for your face, but all over your body.  Find a toner containing glycolic or other alpha hydroxy acids and you will be saying goodbye to those pesky ingrown hairs and shaving bumps!

So what are you waiting for?! Buy your new favorite beauty care product - a Toner - now by clicking here!
